Top talent comes from music videos.
Visualizing music is an art. No matter if it’s experimental, performative, direct, graphic, or fun, it is an incredible feeling to see video that encapsulates the feeling of a track. So many of the best visual artists hone their skills in this genre. We want to find the next great auteur, the next great musician, and the next great music video.

We’re looking for the underground. We’re looking for the artist we haven’t heard of. We’re looking for people who just started out and we’re looking for experienced directors. We’re looking for the new idea. We’re looking for something we’ve never seen before.

We’re waiting for you. Submit now.

    This has been a wonderful festival to be a part of. I am so excited to have won for best originality for a music video. I love how they put things together for the presentation to present to the winners, that was so cool, because friends and family was able to see it as well. Great experience! I have so many people requesting music after winning this.
